Jump to navigation Jump to search

Below are some sample greetings that you can cut-and-paste onto new users' talk pages. Replace any $VARIABLES with the correct text. Be sure to place greetings on each user's talk page, and not the user's user page, so that the user will get the "You have new messages" alert notice.

One can also use templates for the same purpose.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! We're glad to have you here. Unfortunately, we can't keep the articles you created on $PAGE1 and $PAGE2, because they violate another person's copyright. We aren't legally allowed to directly take other people's work; however, it is fine to research topics on other sites. See Wikipedia:Copyrights for details.

But don't get discouraged – try writing your own $SUBJECT articles! For help on writing articles, you can check out the FAQs, especially on contributing and editing. There's a lot to know, but one of the cool things about Wikipedia is that others will edit your contributions to make them better!
